More NFL Draft Selection Geekiness

Today is that time of year again, the NFL draft. Not quite the same with the labor situation overhang, but that doesn’t seem to have slowed the perennial debates about draft order and the professional prospects of various members of this year’s draft class.  Our blog posts on the NFL draft are always among our more widely read posts, and we’re very interested in the draft because it is such an iconic example of NFL teams devising methods to tackle the challenge we think about every day: devising employee selection systems that help organizations hire better and derive long-term competitive advantages.  I don’t have much new to add on the draft this year, but did want to highlight a really interesting article on a new entrant to the field.
